• This may create sparks, which can cause fire.
• After the indoor unit is switched OFF with the remote controller,
make sure to turn the breaker OFF or disconnect the power
plug.
Do not expose your body directly to cool air for a prolonged
length of time.
• This could be detrimental to your health.
The unit should not be installed, relocated, disassembled,
altered, or repaired by the user.
• An improperly handled air conditioner may cause fire, electric
shock, injury, or water leakage, etc. Consult your dealer.
• If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or its service agent in order to avoid a hazard.
When installing, relocating, or servicing the unit, make sure
that no substance other than the specified refrigerant (R410A)
enters the refrigerant circuit.
• Any presence of foreign substance such as air can cause abnormal pressure rise and may result in explosion or injury.
• The use of any refrigerant other than that specified for the system
will cause mechanical failure, system malfunction, or unit breakdown. In the worst case, this could lead to a serious impediment
to securing product safety.
Meanings of symbols used in this manual
: Be sure not to do.
: Be sure to follow the instruction.
: Never insert your finger or stick, etc.
: Never step onto the indoor/outdoor unit and do not put anything on them.
: Danger of electric shock. Be careful.
: Be sure to disconnect the power supply plug from the power outlet.

● OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS ●
CLEANING
Instructions:
• Switch off the power supply or turn off the breaker before cleaning.
• Be careful not to touch the metal parts with your hands.
• Do not use benzine, thinner, polishing powder, or insecticide.
Air filter (Nano platinum filter)
• Clean every 2 weeks
• Remove dirt by a vacuum cleaner, or rinse with water.
• After washing with water, dry it well in shade.
What is “Nano platinum filter”?
Nano platinum is a ceramic particle that includes a platinum nanoparticle.
The particles are incorporated into the filter material, which results in providing semi-permanent antibacterial and deodorizing characteristics for the
filter. Nano platinum surpasses the catechin (a bioflavonoid that is found
in green tea) in performance. Nano platinum filter uses this compound not
only to improve air quality but also to eliminate bacteria and viruses. This air
filter has a semi-permanent lasting effect even after washing it with water.
• Use only diluted mild detergents.
• Do not expose parts to direct sunlight, heat, or fire to dry.
• Do not use water hotter than 122°F (50°C).
Air cleaning filter
(Electrostatic anti-allergy enzyme filter,
blue)
Every 3 months:
• Remove dirt by a vacuum cleaner.
When dirt cannot be removed by vacuum cleaning:
• Soak the filter and its frame in lukewarm water before rinsing it.
• After washing, dry it well in shade. Install all tabs of the air filter.
Every year:
• Replace it with a new air cleaning
filter for best performance.
• Parts Number MAC-2330FT-E

1. Lift the front panel until a “click” is heard.
2. Hold the hinges and pull to remove as shown in the illustration above.
• Wipe with a soft dry cloth or rinse it with water.
• Do not soak it in water for more than two hours.
• Dry it well in shade.
3. Install the front panel by following the removal
procedure in reverse. Close the front panel securely and press the positions indicated by the
arrows.
Every 3 months:
• Remove dirt by a vacuum cleaner, or soak the framed filter in lukewarm
water 86 to 104°F [30 to 40°C] for about 15 minutes. Rinse well.
• After washing, dry it well in shade.
• Deodorizing feature recovers by cleaning the filter.
When dirt or smell cannot be removed by cleaning:
• Replace it with a new air cleaning filter.
• Parts Number MAC-3000FT-E
Important
• Clean the filters regularly for best performance and to
reduce power consumption.
• Dirty filters cause condensation in the air conditioner
which will contribute to the growth of fungi such as
mold. It is therefore recommended to clean air filters
every 2 weeks.

WHEN YOU THINK THAT TROUBLE HAS OCCURRED
Even if these items are checked, when the unit does not recover from the
trouble, stop using the air conditioner and consult your dealer.
Symptom
Explanation & Check points
Indoor Unit
The unit cannot be operated.
• Is the breaker turned on?
• Is the power supply plug connected?
• Is the ON timer set? Page 9
The horizontal vane does not
move.
• Are the horizontal vane and the vertical vane
installed correctly?
• Is the fan guard deformed?
• When the breaker is turned on, the horizontal
vanes’ position will be reset in about a minute.
After the reset has completed, the normal horizontal vanes’ operation resumes. The same is
true in the emergency cooling operation.

The room cannot be cooled or
heated sufficiently.
• Is the temperature setting appropriate?
Page 6
• Is the fan setting appropriate? Please change
fan speed to higher setting. Page 7
• Are the filters clean? Page 11
• Is the fan or heat exchanger of the indoor unit
clean?
• Are there any obstacles blocking the air inlet or
outlet of the indoor or outdoor unit?
• Is a window or door open?
The room cannot be cooled
sufficiently.
• When a ventilation fan or a gas cooker is used
in a room, the cooling load increases, resulting
in an insufficient cooling effect.
• When the outside temperature is high, the cooling
effect may not be sufficient.
The room cannot be heated
sufficiently.
• When the outside temperature is low, the heating
effect may not be sufficient.
Air does not blow out soon in
the heating operation.
• Please wait as the unit is preparing to blow out
warm air.

while, then restarted.
Explanation & Check points
Remote controller
When SWING is selected in
COOL/DRY/FAN mode, the
lower horizontal vane does not
move.
• It is normal that the lower horizontal vane does
not move when SWING is selected in COOL/
DRY/FAN mode.
The airflow direction changes
during operation.
The direction of the horizontal
vane cannot be adjusted with
the remote controller.
• When the unit is operated in COOL or DRY
mode, if the operation continues with air blowing
down for 0.5 to 1 hour, the direction of the airflow
is automatically set to horizontal position to
prevent water from condensing and dripping.
• In the heating operation, if the airflow temperature is too low or when defrosting is being
done, the horizontal vane is automatically set
to horizontal position.
The operation stops for about
10 minutes in the heating
operation.
• Outdoor unit is in defrost.
Since this is completed in max.10 minutes,
please wait. (When the outside temperature is too
low and humidity is too high, frost is formed.)
Sound
Cracking sound is heard.
• This sound is generated by the expansion/contraction of the front panel, etc. due to change in
temperature.
The unit starts operation by
itself when the main power is
turned on, but hasn’t received
sign from the remote controller.
• These models are equipped with an auto
restart function. When the main power is
turned off without stopping the unit with the
remote controller and is turned on again, the
unit starts operation automatically in the same
mode as the one set with the remote controller just before the shutoff of the main power.
Refer to “Auto restart function” page 6 .
“Burbling” sound is heard.
• This sound is heard when the outside air is
absorbed from the drain hose by turning on the
range hood or the ventilation fan, making water
flowing in the drain hose to spout out.
This sound is also heard when the outside air
blows into the drain hose in case the outside
wind is strong.
The two horizontal vanes touch
each other. The horizontal
vanes are in an abnormal position. The horizontal vanes do
not return to the correct “close
position”.
Perform one of the following:
• Turn off and on the breaker. Make sure the horizontal vanes move to the correct “close position”.
• Start and stop the emergency cooling operation
and make sure the horizontal vanes move to the
correct “close position”.
Mechanical sound is heard
from the indoor unit.
• This is the switching sound in turning on/off the
fan or the compressor.
The sound of water flowing is
heard.
• This is the sound of refrigerant or condensed
water flowing in the unit.
Hissing sound is sometimes
heard.
• This is the sound when the flow of refrigerant
inside the unit is changed.
The indoor unit discolors over
time.
• Although plastic turns yellow due to the influence
of some factors such as ultraviolet light and
temperature, this has no effect on the product
functions.
Airflow
The air from the indoor unit
smells strange.
Timer
Weekly timer does not operate
according to settings.
• Is the ON/OFF timer set? Page 9, 10
• Transmit the setting information of the weekly
timer to the indoor unit again. When the information is successfully received, a long beep will
sound from the indoor unit. If information fails to
be received, 3 short beeps will be heard. Ensure
information is successfully received. Page 10
• When a power failure occurs and the main power
turns off, the indoor unit built-in clock will be
incorrect. As a result, the weekly timer may not
work normally.
Be sure to place the remote controller where
the signal can be received by the indoor unit.
Page 3
The unit starts/stops the operation by itself.
• Is the weekly timer set? Page 10
Multi system
The indoor unit which is not
operating becomes warm and a
sound, similar to water flowing,
is heard from the unit.
• A small amount of refrigerant continues to flow
into the indoor unit even though it is not operating.
When heating operation is
selected, operation does not
start right away.
• When operation is started during defrosting of
outdoor unit is done, it takes a few minutes (max.
10 minutes) to blow out warm air.
Outdoor Unit
The fan of the outdoor unit does
not rotate even though the compressor is running. Even if the
fan starts to rotate, it stops soon.
• When the outside temperature is low during
cooling operation, the fan operates intermittently
to maintain sufficient cooling capacity.
Water leaks from the outdoor
unit.
• During COOL and DRY operations, pipe or pipe
connecting sections are cooled and this causes
water to condense.
• In the heating operation, water condensed on
the heat exchanger drips down.
• In the heating operation, the defrosting operation
makes ice forming on the outdoor unit melt and
drip down.
White smoke is discharged from
the outdoor unit.
• In the heating operation, vapor generated by the
defrosting operation looks like white smoke.
• Are the filters clean? Page 11
• Is the fan or heat exchanger of the indoor unit
clean?
• The unit may suck in an odor adhering to the
wall, carpet, furniture, cloth, etc. and blow it out
with the air.
In the following cases, stop using the air conditioner and consult your
dealer.
• When water leaks or drips from the indoor unit.
• When the operation indicator lamp blinks.
• When the breaker trips frequently.
• The remote control signal is not received in a room where an electronic ON/OFF
type fluorescent lamp (inverter-type fluorescent lamp, etc.) is used.
• Operation of the air conditioner interferes with radio or TV reception. An amplifier may be required for the affected device.
• When an abnormal sound is heard.
